To address an object by name, if you put the name in quotes you'll get
better performance.

If the name is a number, putting it in quotes is necessary to aoid the
interpreter treating it as an ordinal reference.

Alternatively, it's considered good practice to put an alphabetic chacacter
in front of a numeric name, e.g., "b605".
